Nelson Mandela’s daughter appointed South Africa’s ambassador to Argentina

Fifty-three year old businesswoman and Boston University graduate Zenani Mandela-Dlamini is the first of Mandela''s three remaining children to enter public life.

Nelson Mandela's daughter Zenani has become South Africa's new ambassador to Argentina. The Argentine government has welcomed Zenani as the top official for the African country in Buenos Aires by stressing her appointment represented “South Africa’s recognition of Argentina’s importance.”

“The Argentine government has given diplomatic credentials to Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, as new ambassador of the Republic of South Africa to Argentina” a ministry statement said.

The statement went on to stress bilateral trade has reached $1.3 billion a year, "demonstrating the high potential for both economies."

“In recent years bilateral relations with South Africa have grown in all fields, mostly trade, human rights, sports, culture, science and technology and the nuclear and space sectors helping to reinforce South-South cooperation,” the foreign office stated.

Fifty-three year old businesswoman and Boston University graduate Zenani Mandela-Dlamini is the first of Mandela's three remaining children to enter public life. Mandela-Dlamini was a toddler when her father was imprisoned in South Africa.

Mandela was still in prison when she married Swazi Prince Thumbumuzi Dlamini in 1973. They have two sons and lived in Boston until their divorce.
